    Mount it infront of the motor.
    I doubt you will get away with that one being the wagon rear will not be sealed off from the drivers compartment.

    You can do it but you'll need a small tank up front, for the fuel and an electric pump to fill the small tank. If you ar running carbs the electric pump will work o'k from the rear tank, but if you're running a mechanical pump you will definately need a small tank up front. I've got a duel setup on my car i can switct to a carb and run gas in a matter of minutes, from the rear tank but since i run alcohol with a mechanical pump i have a 3 gal tank mounted in the front.

    Put the tank in the rear and build either a floor to roof wall in front of it or fully enclose it wall to wall with tin.
